MEMORY Shaping Connections in the Arts Therapies
ATMINTIES atspindžiai menų terapijose
16th European Arts Therapies Conference
September 22nd to 25th September 2021
Vilnius University, Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania
Conference 2021 Keynote
We are delighted to announce Doris Salcado as our Conference Keynote Speaker
Doris Salcedo makes sculptures and installations that function as political and mental archaeology, using domestic materials charged with significance and suffused with meanings accumulated over years of use in everyday life. Salcedo often takes specific historical events as her point of departure, conveying burdens and conflicts with precise and economical means.
Salcedo was the recipient of the 2020 inaugural Nomura art prize and also received the 2019 Possehl Prize for International Art; Rolf Schock Prize in the Visual Arts (2017); Nasher Sculpture Prize (2015).
Conference in Vilnius, Lithuania, September 2021
Further to recent Board meetings and correspondence with colleagues in Lithuania, we are still working towards the conference happening in Vilnius this year.

We can confirm a final decision will be made by 30th April as to whether the conference will go ahead this year.
